After a long wait, we finally finished the video and confirmed with the winning school and awarded the Guatemala House Prize! And the winning school is LAKEHEAD UNIVERSITY STUDENT UNION!
For those of you that forget, Festival set out this year to make a difference in the world and our first mission was to donate the building of a house for a poor family in Guatemala through http://www.fromhousestohomes.org/ - a charity very near to Festival owner, Scott McLaren.
The winning team will have the house Materials paid for by Festival and 2 flights for representatives of Lakehead to fly down to actually build the house. A build team is usually 5-6 people, and Festival will work together with Lakehead to help send the additional 3-4 people down to help with the build.
